Deciding on the data you wish to collect and how to go about it is no easy feat. Numbers are important, but alone are not enough—you need personal anecdotes to give them colour and meaning, and qualitative research to understand for example how change has been achieved. Similarly, individual stories, however heart-rending, lack context without a solid grounding in figures, and numbers are important to understand the size of impact an intervention has had.

So what’s the best balance to reach between quantitative and qualitative data? This seminar, a repeat of a 2015 event, will explore:

  • What different types of data can tell you
  • How to decide what types of data to collect
  • What’s involved in collecting different types of data
